of california in 1962. nixon remembered that. [laughter] so one of the early dirty tricks of the nixon white house was finding a way to get rid of ray. nixon's housing secretary was a fellow named george romney. who's son mitt has been in the news lately. mitt's day complained that ray was not being very cooperative. he seemed to think he could run it any way saw he fit. there was talk that ray may have used fannie mae postage or letter head to raise money for the democratic candidates. and the white house was gets complaints from the republican lawyers in south carolina that democratic lawyers were getting all fannie mae work related to foreclosures. all the fees. within nine months nixon fired him as fannie mae without giving any public explanation. he resisted. he full min nate to the press that nixon was turning fannie mae in to a patronage put pudding. he tried to get a restraining order from the federal judge. the judge wouldn't budge. ray kept showing up for work anyway. at one point, the lights went out and the phone lines went dead. some people interpreted this as a subtle message f
california on our independent line. caller: i have two daughters who are attending public schools and they were attending private school. my contribution is approximately $30 per day. at the private school, it was private instruction. more days per school year than the public school and so forth. now i am moving them into the public school system. i get a note from the school system saying if your children are absent for a given day, the school does not receive money for the days they are not there. they were hoping we could cover their cost of $40 per student day. my first question is, how is it that at a public level where they have a fraction of the number of days of instruction per year and hours per day are shorter, they are asking for $40 per student day and they are getting a better quality of education at $30 a day per student. in the state of california, we are going broke. how can we justify more money for pensions? the second question i have for you is that you have mentioned the bush tax cuts for the rich and how this election was about letting the tax cuts for the ric
